I have been diagnosed (very early stage) with Parkinson's. Not looking for sympathy or sponsorship but am doing 4th IM this year and wondered who else has it and any training tips or comments

No tips. But I think it would be foolish to not give it a go.

My mum has had Parkinson's for just over thirty years and so I wish you well.

FYI - I think that there are some threads on slowtwitch about this too.

I've heard cycling is good for alleviating symptoms

Good luck

Thanks. Yes, some studies have shown that. Luckily being a triathlete I am already doing tons of exercise - docs say most people have to be badgered even to do a minimal amount
